The possibilities for education and augmented reality go far beyond just textbooks. In fact, augmented reality could make learning safer for kids. Why place dangerous chemicals in the hands of children when virtual chemistry sets could eliminate any dangers? Kids can swap protective goggles for head-mounted displays (HMDs) and beakers and bunsen burners for virtual test tubes with 3D chemicals - all of which could be done from the comfort of the student's desk, or even at home.
